Best Pastries Ever!!

One of the waitresses at a pub told us about this place and she was so right. The owner is such a friendly little thing and I have to say it was the best cappuccino we had on our trip. Her pastries are the best we have had, very rich but not sweet. They are closed on Mondays, take the... read more

We grabbed a sandwich here and took it with us to the brewery that is nearby. Friendly staff, who will try to help you in English. Pastries and desserts are little pieces of art.

Lovely atmosphere...most beautiful pastries ever. We came for chocolatines....were doing our own chocolate croissant reviews and comparisons across the city. Winner, for sure! These croissant were so fresh and flaky and delicious, they just melted in your mouth. Great coffee, too...and, of the competitor a few blocks away...they used higher quality chocolate inside, but the pastry itself could not touch... More

The positive reviews here for this bakery are rightfully so. We stayed in a hotel nearby so went here every morning for a quick breakfast. Great coffee. Great pastries that are typical of a french bakery with a little local twist. For example, one day I had a Kouign-amann filled with local strawberries. Unlike another bakery nearby, Le Croquembouche's staff... More

AMAZING!!!! The croissants melted in my mouth, were to die for. The assortment here is insane. Coffee was average. Good quiche for breakfast, pizzas/focaccia throughout the day. I loved the pear and chocolate combinations. I never knew merengue's could be so huge. Nothing bad to say about this place.

I've eaten here for lunch 3 or 4 times in the past couple of weeks and the food is consistently good. Even if there is a line it is not a problem, the line moves very fast. I've had the ham and cheese croissant (warm), the turkey baguette sandwich, and the chicken petit pain and there were all very nice... More

We stopped here because the bakery we wanted to go to was closed for January 1st and 2nd. And lucky for us that we did. It was like walking into a bakery heaven. Choosing what to order was really difficult. We went for a vegetarian pizza and a croissant with ham and cheese. Both were heated for us. They were... More

This place has the best selection of fresh bakes pastries, breads, cakes, sandwiches, quiches and chocolates. It is continental breakfast heaven and we brought home some quiche and it was tremendous also. It has a sit in area and hot drinks so you can eat breakfast or lunch here too.

If your hotel is close by here, definitely have breakfast here. I found the pastries much better than Paillard and there are no line-ups!

We ordered the ham and cheese croissant, smoked salmon Panini, tomato soup, and a latte. The ham and cheese croissant was delicious and the tomato soup was fantastic. We walked 20 minutes to get to this bakery and it did not disappoint.
